10/10 Exceptional

The sharing room of this hotel is really nice. It's clean, spacious and comfortable. Maybe because I was almost alone in my room after a guy who comes from Norway left but overall it's nice. Especially, the restroom and the shower isn't separated.

6/10 Good

Hostel was okay but location not fantastic.
The hostel was simple and the staff were friendly, although there had been a mix up with the room. It was small and clean and had everything we needed but didn't have great vibes. The only good thing about the location was that it was really close to the metro but it was not in a great area of the city.

10/10 Exceptional

A little outside the city centre but not far away from the main bus and train station. Lots of food places and shops right outside the hostel. Only major negative was the condition of toilets and showers. Whilst clean, they were in urgent need of updating and refreshing, and as like many hostels, could do with another toilet. Kicthen small but adequate. Lockers could be bigger, only small ones in the main area (not bedrooms). Staff very friendly and welcoming.
